Munday, 26, plead guilty to the charge at Picton Local Court today over an incident that occured back in December of last year. Munday and his partner, Grace Campbell, were recorded yelling back and forth at one another before Campbell begins to throw objects at Munday. The streamer eventually leaves the livestream’s viewable area and sounds of a fight can soon be heard in the distance.
The ABC cited an agreed statement of facts tendered to the court that stated Munday admitted to police at the time of the incident that he’d slapped his partner in the face and held her to the ground.
“I just held her down because I wanted her to stop,” Munday told police.
A month after the incident, Munday’s brother Daniel described the relationship as “toxic”, saying the pair have had “so many domestics it’s hard to keep track of them.”
Most recently, Campbell was charged with assault late last month after throwing a kettle at Munday.
Munday will be sentenced on 26 August.
